Bow to your sensei.

Today is October 31st, special for at least 3 reasons.

First, it is Reformation Day, celebrating the anniversary of Martin Luther nailing the 95 Theses of unhappiness with the Roman Catholic system for discussion in 1517. People of the Protestant ilk, and most of western civilization needs to bow to your sensei.

Secondly, it is the birthday of one Robert Van Winkle.

So, I share with you some lyrics from each.

Martin Luther:
A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing;
Our helper He amid the flood of mortal ills prevailing.
For still our ancient foe doth seek to work us woe
His craft and power are great and armed with cruel hate,
On earth is not his equal.

Ein’ feste Burg ist unser Gott, ein gute Wehr und Waffen;
Er hilft uns frei aus aller Not, Die uns jetzt hat betroffen.
Der alt’ böse Feind, Mit Ernst er’s jetzt meint,
Gross’ Macht und viel List Sein’ grausam’ Ruestung ist,
Auf Erd’ ist nicht seingleichen.

Robert Van Winkle:


Third, Ligonier Ministries is practically giving away genuine leather ESV Reformation Study Bibles for any donation until November 2.

You never cease to amaze me: Martin Luther and Robert Van Winkle (A.K.A "Vanilla Ice") in the same post.

HAPPY REFORMATION DAY!

Think those two would ever get together for a duet or some collaborative song writing?

;-)

Happy Reformation Day to you, mein Bruder!

Here's to 95 reasons to wish you a happy belated Reformation Day.

The ball rolls swiftly downhill, from "Here I stand," to "Ice, ice baby."

Robert Van Winkle... isn't he well-known for taking a really long nap or something like that?!? ;)

Napoleon Dynamite

How can I bow to my sensei when he is AWOL?

Two consecutive Mondays without his having a case of the Mondays post.

Plus, I don't know, the most signicant historical event of the year has occurred and passed without an election day post or especially an election result post.

Where is Gunny?
